There is a great deal to be said about what might happen next, and I expect to post regularly as events unfold about the legal and constitutional aspects of the Brexit. United Kingdom with the European Union will largely depend on which form of Brexit is pursued.

Three possible scenarios, which will each have a different effect on the future of UK IP law, are generally discussed. A soft version of Brexit would entail the United Kingdom’s membership in the European Economic Area (EEA), in which states suchAuthor: Marc Mimler.

Affirming a lower court decision, the UK Supreme Court has held that, despite the referendum in June calling for withdrawal from the European Union, Britain cannot withdraw from the Union without parliamentary approval.

INTRODUCTION. When the Great Repeal Bill was announced, 1 a collective sigh of antipathy among many constitutional watchers emerged. But for some, the concern did not revolve around repeal of the European Communities Act (ECA) not being ‘great’; after 40+ years of stormy relations with its European partners, that much was assured.

The United Kingdom is almost unique in having no written constitution, or no written constitution in one place (unless the statute book be said to be one place), or no written constitutional code, indeed in having no constitution as such at all.

2 The danger of a written codified constitution is said to be that it gives the judges too much Author: Alec Samuels. The European Union (Withdrawal) Bill seems to make no clear provision for EU Directives to play a role in the UK domestic legal scene following Brexit. The UK Government ought to clarify its plans as regards these crucial internal market measures, in the interests of assisting firms and their advisers in their Brexit preparations.

The. Brexit is a major constitutional change. It creates considerable constitutional uncertainty, but also opportunity. It could prove Britain’s constitutional moment. Vernon Bogdanor argues that just as joining the EU fundamentally altered the UK constitution, so Brexit could, by exposing the very nakedness of Britain’s uncodified arrangements, prove a catalyst for a written constitution.

Another key-element in the British Constitution is the rule of law.
